Behind The Scenes: PSA Fashion Show 2011

(Please wait for slide show to begin)

Is it really Wednesday already?! We apologize for the prolongation of this post, but we needed the couple of days off to recover from the fashion high we had over the weekend. There truthfully is such a thing as fashion show hangovers. With that said we are sad, but happy to announce the 17th annual PSA Fashion show is officially written in U of M history. It seems just a few days ago we were jostling models around and bathing in personal body odor from the hard work put into this show - oh wait, it was only a few days ago. Our Saturday in a nutshell consisted of prepping for the show 4 hours early, changing personal outfits 45 times, eating 8 times prior to and during the show, styling models, losing and finding accessories, losing and finding shoes, losing and finding our sanity, and of course ending the night with a proudly produced fashion event! 
We'd like to thank a handful of people for making this night a successful one. This is synonmous to one of those moments where you're watching the Academy awards and you're annoyed that your favorite actress just pulled out a list of names to read before his/her acceptance speech because you just know it's going to take forever - yup this is one of those!

A very special thanks to PSA's board for the help and recognition they gave the Tattertales. Hard work doesn't come unnoticed and they made sure of that. We are extremely gratified to have been given the opportunity of working with a humbled group of passionate students that paved the way for this year's successful outcome. 
Thanks to all the retailors and designers that participated: American Apparel, Cache, Lucky Brand, DSW, Pieter Sibal, Marlena Thao, D.A.V Brandz, 3 Stars & Sun, Il Vostro, Nomala Xiong, Carol Lee.
Big ups to Tattertales very own (Winnie), for getting Nordstrom (the first department store EVER) to sponsor PSA!
And also to our great friend Moni Ouk who came to give us a hand and also keeping us on track backstage at the show - we owe you one!

Thanks to all the make up artists and hair stylists. You guys did an amazing job! And to all the volunteers that did the peasant work knowing it was for a great cause :)  And a very special thank you to our friends at OMG Agency for putting a last minute film crew together to shoot the show! 

And to anyone and everyone that participated - be proud of yourselves. You can officially hold your heads up high knowing you put together an outstanding event.
